"A Year Ago Today" as written by Paul Wiltshire, Mark Holden and Delta Goodrem....
Another year older
A little bit stronger
A little bit wiser than?
A year ago today

Looking over my shoulder
I was so much younger then
I can't believe what happened
A year ago today

And I just forget about it
It wouldn't mean a thing
You went away
A year ago today

Another year gone by
Oh the tears have run dry
Life seemed so unkind
A year ago today

And I just can't understand it
And I don't think I ever will
You went away
A year ago today

And I just can't understand it
And I don't think I ever will
You went away
A year ago today

And how many times have I questioned myself
What more could I do
And how many times did I fool myself
Over you oh? yeah

You've gotta pick yourself up,
Take another look
And dust yourself off cause life's not too good,
I'll say it to myself and I'll say it again
Lover will never end

And though we're so far apart
You're forever in my heart

Another year older
A little bit stronger
On this anniversary
You're watching over me

You went away
A year ago today

You ran away
A year ago today

    General CommentYeah, Delta wrote it for her aunty who died of Hodgkin's Disease - same as what Delta had.

    They also played it on the radio a year on from the first Bali Bombings in the nightclubs. So sad :( But I think it can relate to anyone who has ever suffered a loss, sadness, grief , breakup etc.

    General CommentAlthough the focus is on Delta's aunt, it's a great song because you can easily relate to it... that being the reason it ended up on the radio as a tribute for the Bali Bombings victims. Any kind of sadness.
